  • Sweden will push ahead with removing almost all its remaining pandemic restrictions on Wednesday.
  • While the hospitality industry has been able to stay open throughout the pandemic, restrictions on the number of people allowed to share a table, and increased space between tables have had an impact, and the removal of the restrictions now brings new challenges.
  • "Most of the staff that we had to let go were working extra, and they have gone on to study now", says restaurant owner Fredrik Andersson.
